Junior Travel Ambassador (JTA) Scheme
About this activity
Suitable for year 5 and 6 pupils. Supports the PSHE and Citizenship National Curriculum.
TfL's Junior Travel Ambassador (JTA) scheme encourages safer, active and independent travel within the school community, with a focus on year 6 pupils as they prepare for the transition to secondary school.
The scheme involves recruiting a team of JTAs; year 5 and 6 pupils who work to promote active travel and road safety to their peers through a range of activities.
TfL provides all the resources and guidance needed to set up and run your school’s own JTA team.
Running the scheme
With most of the work done by JTAs, your school must fully support the scheme and allocate a school JTA guide. This can be either a teacher or learning assistant who oversees the JTA team and supports them with their projects.
You will also need to create a dedicated JTA noticeboard to share the latest active travel news and promote current activities.
For further information on the JTA scheme contact your local council school travel advisor or road safety officer.
This activity supports the Vision Zero target to eliminate death and serious injuries on London’s streets.
